The Disney animated film The Lion King was a huge hit when originally released and when they announced a live action version it seemed unnecessary. Critics looked at it as a money grab on an already classic title. Whatever it is, it's going to be huge if this trailer is any indication. CGI has come a long way since TRON and the new trailer for The Lion King proves it. It almost impossible to tell the difference between live animal scenes shot in the wild and the CGI scenes created on a computer.
